Psychologists at Tandem have extensive experience in Autism diagnostic assessments. We specialize in assessment for preschool-age children, which may include testing in the following areas:
-social communication and play (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2 – ADOS-2)
-developmental history (caregiver interview)
Each assessment consists of specific diagnostic assessment tools that aide the psychologist in gaining a deeper understanding of the child to help determine whether the child meets diagnostic criteria for Autism.
Parents can self-refer, a doctor’s note is not required. If your child is involved with services in the community (e.g. SLP, OT), we may ask to review documentation. Please call for more information.
Psychological assessments are also available to help identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses including their learning profile and behaviours. These specialized assessments are available to assess for neurodevelopmental diagnoses including ADHD.
